Meet the Owners of Junk King Cobb County
Have you ever stopped to think about where the mountains of trash that we produce eventually end up? Individuals and businesses in the United States produce a world-leading 250 million tons of trash each and every year. That equals out to around 4.4 pounds of trash per person per day. Responsibly dealing with that trash is one of the most pressing environmental tasks of our day, and is one of the reasons that Jimmy Van Buren and his family are proud to own and operate Junk King of Cobb County.
“At the rate that the population is exploding, we are not too far away from having 10 billion people in the world. And if we don’t start thinking more about recycling, reusing, and donating, the resources we depend on are going to be gone,” says Jimmy´s father Harry Van Buren. “So that’s how important our business is to the survival of the species. And it really truly is a survival of the species type of business.”
Jimmy Van Buren is proud to lead the Junk King Cobb County team. Jimmy has much experience with Junk King, as he has worked with his family since they opened their first location in North Atlanta in 2011. Now, he will be leading the charge as his family expands into Cobb County and the surrounding area.
Junk King of Cobb County is the leading professional junk removal service for individuals, households, and businesses throughout the northern Georgia area. The Van Buren family currently owns three Junk King Franchises in the northern Georgia area, and has plans to eventually open a fourth business in the metropolitan Atlanta area. For now, Junk King of Cobb County offers its junk removal services to residents of:
Jimmy has extensive experience running operations, training teams, maintaining the trucks and recycling, meaning he is fully equipped for this new responsibility. He received his Bachelor of Science with an emphasis in computer information systems from Cumberland University and has been with Junk King ever since graduating. Since his family opened their North Atlanta location, they’ve grown their operations to nine trucks and show no signs of slowing down. As a family-owned business, new Junk King Cobb County location is going to build off of years of experience in providing the absolute best junk removal services in the region.
“From the time we joined the Junk King family to now, I’ve really enjoyed the customer aspect of the company. We always put our customer first and give every job 100% effort. Plus, it’s great to make an eco-friendly impact on the community,” said Jimmy.

Jimmy appreciates getting to help others relieve stress in their lives by de-cluttering. His team has worked with many individuals over the years to help rid their homes of junk. The relief and satisfaction he sees from them after seeing a clean home is quite an uplifting feeling.
“It has really been a very satisfying business, and I get a lot of pleasure out of helping people,” his father Harry Van Buren says. “You can’t believe how many smiles we put on people’s faces when we’re we go and (the client´s) garage is just packed wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling, front-to-back. And when we leave, we’ve got little piles of things that we’re going to recycle or donate. When they can finally park their cars in their garage again, they are so happy when we leave.”
Outside of his duties at Junk King, Jimmy likes spending time with his wife and kids, especially at the park. A former baseball and basketball player in college, Jimmy loves teaching his children the fundamentals of the game. Of course, he enjoys firing up the grill on the weekends for a backyard get together.

“We offer full service junk removal, where the heaviest thing you should have to lift is the telephone,” says Harry Van Buren.

Appliance Removal in Cobb County
In our day and age of “planned obsolescence,” it is not uncommon for household appliances to break down relatively quickly. When your AC unit decides to hit the dust in the middle of a sweltering summer afternoon, purchasing a new one as quickly as possible is a pressing matter. If your HVAC Company doesn’t offer haul away services, however, what exactly are you supposed to do with a massive, several hundred pound AC unit sitting in your backyard?

From the small coffee pot to the massive 30-year old refrigerator that was costing you expensively on your monthly energy bill, our junk removal technicians make it easy for you to get rid of your used appliances in an environmentally-friendly way.
